Show them proof: Using surveys to achieve change

Schools are mandated to follow specific curriculum expectations, but often the narrow curriculum leaves out important topics that students need to know. Persuading a school to consider new approaches will often require more than words – so we have created a data collection tool for you to easily illustrate the problem. Contact us if you need any help analysing the data.

If you have any concerns about the education of your child, create a survey to collect data that will inform you of the extent of the problem!

Here’s a guide to creating a survey using Google forms

I suggest using a linear 1-5 scale where 1 is fully disagree, and 5 is fully agree. Give the survey to your students and see what their response is.

The questions you may ask can vary, our sample questions are based off our “Study, Succeed, Share” Workshop

With data, you can better persuade people to listen. Schools will act when parents speak out together and contact the press.
